A rescued alligator missing a large portion of its lower jaw. It is assumed that it was lost in a fight with another gator.

Yes, that is its tongue sticking out. Evidently a common misconception about alligators and crocodiles is that they don’t have a tongue, which is 100% false.

Now that it has been successfully rescued, this alligator’s ability to feed itself will not longer be an issue. Out in the wild, this gator had to compete with others for food and was still somehow surviving after losing the main weapon in its alligator arsenal.

I’ve said it before, and it bears repeating: if you ever think that you might be having a rough go of things, take a peek into the natural world for a reality check.

This animal survived the brute-force amputation of its lower jaw without anesthesia, pain meds, antibiotics to treat the infection that undoubtedly sidelined it for a significant period of time, and is still kicking after beating the odds that might suggest this handicap should have made this animal unable to feed itself.

You cannot kill that which will not die.
